Throw away the dirty, sopping wet, mildewy bath rug. Cleanliness, dedication, and consistency for simple, everyday affairs are the way of the Japanese.  From the temples and shrines to the bath, Japanese instruments and buildings are made from Hinoki wood, the country's most prized timber.  Hinoki cypress wood is a by-product of the Chamaecyparis obtusa tree, and regarded with great esteem for its aromatic and antibacterial benefits. In Japan, it is the only thing you should let your feet touch when exiting the bath.

In Japanese culture, the bath is taken at night and is carried on casually with no rush, elongating the process until the bather is completely refreshed.  Strong yet flexible, hinoki cypress wood is a decongestant and relaxant as well, excellent for stuffy noses, sinus and chest congestion, and respiratory problems like asthma. The light, lemony-scent has also been used to treat mild skin irritations and cuts. Hinoki’s natural resins prevent mold and mildew, making the wood resistant to bacteria and the absorption of odors.  

Use it on the floor of your bath, shower, or sauna room.  The raised slats of the mat ensure sufficient drainage while the grooved surface provides traction. 

The Cypress wood comes from responsibly harvested Cypress trees cut down in the process of forest thinning, which is required to maintain healthy forest growth.

Use & Care

Place mat on flat surfaces only. Avoid exposing the mat to direct sunlight. Mat cannot safely support more than 250 lbs. 

Hinoki contains a natural antibacterial resin that has the beneficial effect of preventing mold and other bacteria formation on wood surface. If resin builds up and becomes sticky, simply wash off excess with hot water.

Use a non-skid pad under Hinoki Bath Mat to prevent from sliding on smooth floor.

Place before shower, bath, or sauna.  The essential oils of hinoki wood are best released with steaming hot water.
